.... around here at the moment. The wind is howling around the house and everything is rattling!! Fortunately, it's lovely and warm and safe inside. I had great plans for today - preparation for Scouts this evening, ironing and making a few cards. But I've been a bit ill today - can't think why, but I've been in bed most of the day - still probably the best place to be. However, I got up a couple of hours ago, feeling hungry and rested - so it was obviously nothing serious.
Scouts still went ahead, one of the other leaders was able to cover for me. Hopefully they had a good evening - all about emergency aid - I was really looking forward to playing with the Resus Annies!!
But I managed to do at least one of the things I planned - and I've just been in the craft room and made a super quick card for the Clean & Simple challenge - FTL125. I like this sketch - I think it's really versatile, and this time I stuck to the sketch too :)
My card is really clean and simple - but I did add a bit of bling in the form of sparkling embossing powder. The papers all come the wonderful 6" × 6" Pink Petticoat Victorian Rose papers that came free with this month's issue of Quick Cards (the same paper that I used in this morning's card). I mounted the cut pieces (3cm × 7cm) onto some bright pink pearly card from my stash. I stamped the circles using Versamark and added embossing powder. Finally, I added a very elaborate swirly birthday greeting in bright pink. A very girly card!!
